The former first daughter said that PM Imran is begging for NRO from PDM

GARHI KHUDA BAKSH (Dunya News) – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz on Sunday said that those who couldn’t come to power for 22 years had been imposed on the nation by stealing the votes.

Addressing a rally on the occasion of the death anniversary of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto in Garhi Khuda Baksh on Sunday, she thanked Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for their warmth and hospitality since her arrival in the city.

Launching a tirade against Prime Minister Imran Khan, she said that those could not come to power even after 22 years were brought to power by stealing votes but they admitted he was not prepared for the challenges when he assumed office, adding that the country cannot be run like this.

The PML-N vice president said that PM Imran has said that "he did not know" of the energy problems in the country, of the circular debts, of the current account deficit, or running the country.

Maryam Nawaz went on to say that the daughters and sister-in-laws of politicians are being dragged to the courts, adding that the politicians have been subjected to character assassination.

“The government declared former prime minister and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif fugitive but is unable to say a single word regarding bringing back former president General (r) Pervez Musharraf,” she added.

The former first daughter said that PM Imran is begging for NRO from PDM and sending his emissaries to strike a deal with the opposition parties.

“PM Imran said that the opposition was defaming the army,” she said and added he is the one who criticised the state institutions while he was in India.

Revisiting the political relationship of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto, Maryam Nawaz said both suffered at the hands of anti-democratic forces, adding that she can laid her life for the ideology of her father.

"When the PPP came into power in 2008, many wanted PML-N to topple the government. But Nawaz Sharif was strongly against it and said political parties do not conspire against or for anyone to form governments, but the public is responsible for electing a party into power," she added.
